One of Folkestone's best assets

Visited the harbour arm and harbour area. Walked to the lighthouse and had lunch at Follies. Good to see investment in the area.... hopefully the start of things to come

Folkestone is finished as a ferry port and slowly parts of it are disappearing. Not sure what they are going to the old railway station and viaduct. Visit the harbour before more old infrastructure is demolished. The Channel Tunnel has crippled this old ferry port!

Not much to see when I arrived. The water had gone out and there was only mud and some small boats sitting on the mud to look at, hence the low mark. Hopefully its a much better place to visit when the tide is in and the sun is shining.

This is a really great addition to the harbour area of Folkestone! Great little places to eat, regular entertainment lots to see. My only reservation is that I would be terrified with small children as there is nothing to stop them going over the side apart from some flimsy chains...!

Stayed at a hotel right on the harbour, it is undergoing a refurbishment on some parts bit this did not detract from thoroughly enjoyed our time spent walking around and taking photos. Plenty of pubs and places to eat would like to have gone to the lighthouse but storm Angus hit so it was closed off. Well worth a stroll.

Always worth a visit to the harbour area. As Sunday seafood traders not open. Fun to watch the ladies come out of the loo shaking hands in air? Yes hand dryer not working. Smells of fish and chips greet on arrival Low tide this time so watched kids hunting for still missing treasure. Sandy beach area beyond harbour wall had... More

Really Peaceful! Lots of sea air. On a good day you can see France lots of seafood shops and the general public enjoying themselves. Worth a visit!

It is a nice walk. There are plenty of little see food restaurant. With good weather, lots of people around. At night is quite deserted. Even a bit frightening
